the fact is that the entire US govt are bought and owned by the big banks and big oil and military industrial complex. starting with Obama, most of congress, and their cherry picked supreme court justices. 90% of them are crooks and cronies of the 1%. they're not legitimate representatives of the people. the whole lot of them need to be dumped, and a whole new batch of representatives need to be elected. BUT, only under new campaign financing rules which absolutely ban any "donation" (bribery) from any corporation or any private entity. all campaign money should come from a public fund, and all candidates should get an equal amount.
I dare and challenge senators Bernie Sanders and Al Franken to lead the way and along with 20 other senators that they can convince, to RESIGN from their office, and declare the whole lot of US government elected officials to be illegitimate cronies.
we don't need any more useless petitions Senator Sanders! this government is broken, and illegitimate. we need to dump it, fix the election rules, and start over with a new batch. stop wasting your time and our time with petitions!
I dare you and 20 other senators to RESIGN and join the OCCUPY movement!
we need to start over with a clean slate:
#1 constitutional amendment to fix campaign financing and ban bribery "donations". set up public campaign fund, give all candidates equal amounts.
#2 nation-wide elections to replace all of congress, and the president.
